He was on meet the press today, talking himself in circles. I honestly respect Mitch McConnell more than I do Manchin. He and to a lesser extent Susan Collins are the poster people for term limits, which I actually don't believe in. They are professional politicians whose only goal is seemingly to do nothing but to get re-elected. It's too bad the voters tolerate this behavior.

This is from 2017. I have no idea how these cops and paramedics avoided prosecution, this is murder.

Also for those of you who like our garbagey 80's white sox cheap knockoffs, I hope you were happy seeing an Ohio Valley Conference adidas school wearing the same damn jerseys, if that's not a sign of cheap and bush league I don't know what is.

Let her be, she'll come out when she's ready. She'll come out to eat, drink, and use the box when you aren't waiting for her and she'll slowly get more comfortable.

pie five couldn’t make it a college town?

Too expensive for college kids. $10 for a personal pizza when you can get one in the same town for half that price.

BAC do you need someone to explain roman numerals to you?

Also, Acie Law was recently trending in twitter for this


IIII is acceptable as well as IV.
No

That's it? Just "No"?

Pretty much, any equivalency of 4 is the next whole number minus whatever set of one, ten, hundred, thousand you're figuring.
4 is always 1-5 or IV
40 is 10-50 or XL
400 is 100-500 or CD
4000 is 1000-5000 or MV

Awesome!

I love cats. I don't love how much they tear crap up, or piss everywhere when stressed out or pissed off or sick or feeling neglected or any possible negative emotion whatsoever.

Depends on ya grading curve, definitely wasn't super quick twitchy explosive like Blake or whomever but he was ripped and a nba athlete. I'd reserve that descriptor for like Eddy Curry.

Apparently rusty & clams have a hell of a curve. Of course he was athletic because he was a professional basketball player, but when compared to his peers his athleticism was average. He was a big, tall, strong Ox of a man, but we're not talking about strength, are we? Like you said, he wasn't fast twitch,, he wasn't the least bit versatile either. He couldn't shoot, couldn't, dribble, but he might have been the best at the rim of his time. Here's a list, off the top of my head, of his contemporaries who were either a 4 or 5, who were more athletic than the mailman.
Barkley
Hakeem
Robinson
Shaq
Larry Nance
Shawn Kemp
Dennis Rodman
Larry Johnson
Alonzo Mourning
Derrick Coleman
Ced Ceballos
Tom Chambers
C Web

I won't even do him dirty and include players like KG, who played like 5 All Star games with Malone. There are other players I could include, but won't because the olds will cry, like my guy Vin Baker.

So, yeah, if we're composing him to Kirby Puckett or Claude Lemieux, yeah he's very athletic, but with his peers he's just an average athlete and that's okay, he's still one of the best power forwards of all time.

I think bitching out like major bitches when Dominion invited them to step outside really hurt

Nah, catering news exclusively to MAGA isn't a great long term solution, especially when FNC still exists and is on the television of every auto repair shop in the country. Conservatives have been reliable FNC watchers for the last 20 years, bad production value with names no one knows isn't going to change that.

Yes, all three of those schools went winless, but only TCU and Flood Aggie went 0-18. The Big 12 played 16 conference games before 2012. A&M is the only school with two 15+ game Big 12 losing streaks.

Forbes on states lifting restrictions. Imo the most interesting thing to watch the next month or so. Personally very bullish on the success of this.

Bullish on what? Did you intend to link a different article? What I got when I clicked that link left no room for optimism.
Quote
U.S. coronavirus cases and deaths plummeted last month after peaking in January, and millions of vaccines are reaching American patients’ arms every day, making some observers optimistic the country is moving in the right direction. Still, experts have remained cautious. When states tried to reopen businesses after last spring’s lockdowns, cases quickly shot up again over the summer and forced some states to clamp down again, and lax social distancing restrictions last fall were partly blamed for the country’s latest and most brutal surge. Dr. Rochelle Walensky, director of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, warns this latest loosening of restrictions could cause the country to recede back into yet another surge, continuing a yearlong pattern.

CHIEF CRITIC
Walensky said Monday she’s “really worried” states are moving too quickly to lift their social distancing rules. The country’s infection rate has leveled off in recent weeks, she said, and new variants are making the virus more contagious. President Joe Biden took a sharper tone on Wednesday, deriding Texas’ and Mississippi’s decisions to lift their mask mandates as “Neanderthal thinking.”

SURPRISING FACT
A CDC study Friday found mask mandates are associated with lower rates of coronavirus cases and deaths, and counties tended to see a gradual uptick in cases and deaths after lifting their in-person dining restrictions.

I don't think the mask mandates are a big deal at all because nearly every business, local or chain, will still have masking rules. I think the much bigger issue is unlimited dining and open bars.

I'm going to go with the last scene and closing credits from the actual scrubs finale or Renata tearing up her husband's crap on Big Little Lies.

i didnt want to be a homer, but yes!

I listened to Superman, the entire song, seconds after posting that.

Coming 2 America was very good, well it was essentially the exact same movie but done in reverse.

MIR, can you confirm that this is a thing in Iowa?

?s=20

canco. Can also confirm that pork tenderloin is the most overrated food OAT. There's a reason restaurants don't go broke selling that much meat to one person for like $10.

mash is fantastic

I watched it on the air as a kid, probably ruined it for me, no desire to watch it again as an adult.

It's pretty safe to say so considering that tcu is the only team to go 0-18 in either Big 12, Big 8, Big 7, Southwest, or Missouri Valley conference history.

Jesse SPano "I'm so scared" all goofed on uppers

-This episode was supposed to be about weed but NBC said no.
-That bottle that Slater pulls out of her bag is clearly a bottle of Nature's Made vitamins.
-I had such a huge schoolboy crush on Jessie Spano and Elizabeth Berkeley that I could never bring myself to watch Showgirls, and I still haven't.
